%X This study aims to screen out and to optimize the
major nutrients for maximum carotenoid production and
antioxidation characteristics by Rhodotorula rubra. It was found that
supplementary of 10 g/l glucose as carbon source, 1 g/l ammonium
sulfate as nitrogen source and 1 g/l yeast extract as growth factor in
the medium provided the better yield of carotenoid content of 30.39
μg/g cell dry weight the amount of antioxidation of Rhodotorula
rubra by DPPH, ABTS and MDA method were 1.463%, 34.21% and
34.09 μmol/l, respectively.
